Merrifield celebrates National Night Out
Despite a bit of rain, the Merrifield Lions Club hosted a celebration of National Night Out on Tuesday, Aug. 6, at the Merrifield Lions Park.
It was the club’s first year celebrating the event, which is held in communities across the nation.
The celebration included a brat sale, root beer floats, coloring contest, kids’ games and visitors from the Department of Natural Resources, Kinship Partners, Sexual Assault Victim Services, Mission Township Fire Department and First Responders and the Merrifield Marathons snowmobilers.
Lions Club members said the evening sought to bring the community together, support positive relationships and promote the health and safety of the community.
